Move over Harlequin Sheikhs. Jackie Ashenden's Sheikhs are in a bad boy category of their own.
Felicity Cartwright was in Al-Harah to present her company's proposal to Sheikh Altair when she was taken from the car she was riding in in a bride game. Sheikh Zakir thought Princess Safira was in the car and was surprised when he got American Felicity. Zakir needs a wife and heirs and Felicity will do.
Zakir is a soldier that never thought he would be Sheikh until his brother killed his bride then himself in a fit of madness. He is a man that is a stranger to love. Felicity is a genius. At twenty-four she has started her own company. Her parents are people that never should have reproduced. Her dad wanted a boy and her mother wanted to make her dad happy. When Felicity was not the perfect debutante and didn't find the perfect son-in-law, her parents got a divorce. Zakir likes Felicity's fearlessness and how she will not back down from him.
The only thing that would have made this novel better was Felicity introducing Zakir, the king of his own country to her parents.
I received this ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
